The suitability of soils in Catron County, New Mexico for irrigation is described. The acreage, general location, and relative capability of the soils for use in irrigated agriculture are given. The irrigation land classes were assigned primarily on the basis of soil data available from a general soil map. Although such general soil maps are often made by generalizing from large-scale detailed soil maps, this was possible only to a limited extent in Catron County. Detailed soil surveys were limited to irrigated lands and small areas of rangeland where special studies were conducted. The general soil map of this county, therefore, was prepared largely on the basis of a field reconnaissance together with interpretation of airphotos, topographic maps, geological maps, and other available information.
